Notre Dame completed its upset over Clemson 47-40 that sent fans into a frenzy. After the clock struck 0’s, fans stormed the field and turned this into a “super spreader” event. President-elect Joe Biden would lose his mind if he was awake for this one.

Behind a three-touchdown, 140-yard performance from halfback Kyren Williams, Notre Dame was matching every punch Clemson threw. Clemson was without future No. 1 pick Trevor Lawrence, but the Irish were still impressive.
Isn’t it ironic that our major political networks called the election Saturday, then that evening fans are dancing at midfield like the pandemic never happened? This should surprise absolutely no one who’s paying attention to the weaponization of COVID and this event isn’t likely to be coverage tomorrow. Why would it be? COVID panic did its job.
These kids are jumping up and down like children on Christmas Day. To be clear, these college students should be able to rush the field and celebrate a big win. OutKick’s own Clay Travis was already ripping COVID protocols to bits before this event even happened.
So Trevor Lawrence can travel to Notre Dame and stand on the sideline, but he can’t play? These covid protocols in sports are absolutely insane.— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) November 8, 2020
The only reason Trevor Lawrence didn’t play tonight or fans aren’t in the stands at capacity is because it would be bad PR for college football. That’s the only reason we’re walking around like a flesh-eating virus is on the breath of every walking American.
Who cares anymore right?
Notre Dame is storming the field! This is phenomenal! The coronabros are losing their minds!— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) November 8, 2020
Clay Travis is right that the “coronabros” are going to be furious. No needs to pretend to care about the health of the people now, so there’s no such thing as super spreader events anymore.
We should be happy that something like this is finally happening. Maybe we can begin our transition into living our lives like these students? Regardless of whether claims about COVID are true, if Donald Trump held a rally at the capacity of Notre Dame’s student section, CNN would hold a candle vigil. Never thought we would see an event that made us so happy and sad at once.
